What is CPM?
When it comes to CPM most people think they get payed by every 1,000 visitors but is actually by 1,000 pageviews, theres a HUGE difference!
CPM stands for Cost per Mile which is Cost Per Thousand views (VIEWS not Visitors)
For example one day you might have 500 visitors to your site, lets say all those 500 visitors viewed 3 pages and in each page you have a total of 2 banner ads so that means:
500 x 3 = 1500 x 2 = 3,000
That means 500 visitors gave your 3,000 pageviews, so depending how much the CPM network you are using pays per 1,000 impressions then thats how much you make. For example lets say the CPM network you are using pays 0.40cents per 1,000 pageviews that means with 3,000 pageviews you made like $1.20
Of course there are networks that pay even 3$ or even more per 1,000 imps, but if your sites are mainly warez then you will probably not get into any of those really HIGH paying networks!
BE AWARE THAT NOT ALL NETWORKS WILL PAY YOU FOR EVERY PAGEVIEW A USER GIVES YOU. SOME NETWORKS HAVE A LIMIT OF 3 UNIQUE VIEWS FROM THE SAME USER,ETC WHILE OTHER NETWORKS COUNT MOST OF THEM.
- My favorite and best paying network I have ever tried.
- Very good rates

- Requires at least 75,000 to 100,000 unique visitors per month and 750,000 to 1 million page views per month, as well as at least 1-2 above the fold standard IAB ad placements.
*Your site must get at least 150,000 Impressions monthly in order to be accepted.

*If you use Welcome pages using the tools they provide you might see CPM's as high as $30.00 per 1,000 Impressions.

(Probably one of the best CPM company out there since you name your own CPM price)

Own a Porn Site? Try the networks below!
NOTE: I Don't own a porn site therefor I have never tried any adult CPM networks. I listed the networks below by reading feedback from users around the web
BlackLabelAds is like an adbrite porn alternative. Never tried them but they seem to be pretty popular. I have read a lot of reviews which state they are good but a lot of them also state that they have very low rates.
Adultworld is another pretty popular one, never tried them neither but I have read that they are some what better than black label ads
Juicy ads is an adult marketplace where you sell ad space on your site to advertisings who are looking to advertise their ads on adult websites. You can sell them at the price you wish, pick an avg prize to start off as no one will pay high prices to book an ad on your site unless you get huge traffic.
